Pounds of Fun: Makati Street Meet 2017 Returns for Fitness

An event that began in 2016, the Makati Street Meet has become an avenue to discover one of a kind finds in food, fun and entertainment. With its success last year, garnering the love of thousands of people, Makati will be celebrating this festivity every last Sunday of the month.

On the 30th of April 2017, more than 7,000 attendees experienced a summer in the city, as they gathered along the stretch of Paseo de Roxas. The Makati community and its guests were given an afternoon filled with fun family activities, musical performances, and delicious street eats from merchants of the Mercato Central Group and the Food Truck Association of the Philippines.

Kids and kids at heart played arcade game and adventurous souls showed off their parkour skills while being assisted by professional trainers from Ninja Academy PH. Guests were also treated to sand art activities. The Makati Street Meet held last 30th of April truly served as a great venue to show that summer is not just about beaches during the year’s most vibrant season.

After transforming Paseo de Roxas into a summer hotspot, Makati Street Meet 2017 returned with the latest in workout trends and celebrated fitness.

Dance, Move, and Pound

Last May 28, 2017, thousands of individuals flocked to Makati City to move and groove as the city that makes it happen transformed Paseo de Roxas and the Ayala Triangle Gardens’ courtyard into a hub for fitness, along with only the best local and international instructors.

Guests were given the chance to participate in a fun series of workouts such as Retro Fitness, Zumba, a Night Street Jam with The Project and DJ Jazz Zamora, and Pound, a cardio jam session inspired by the fun of playing drums-- the first of its kind to happen here in the Philippines.

Pound uses lightly weighted drumsticks to transform drumming into a full-body workout. It combines various trainings for cardio, conditioning, and strength with yoga and pilates-inspired movements. The infectious workout is the perfect avenue to let loose, get energized and toned up.

Ayala Land, in partnership with Karl Edwards International treated the Makati community and its guests to a wide variety of food and goods that surely brightened up a hot summer’s day. The Instagram-worthy food trucks were also back with delicious eats that truly satisfied one’s appetite after having a good workout!

Summer never ends in the city that makes it happen as it continues its success with another street meet that aims to strengthen its sense of community, and create a vibrant space where everyone can celebrate the dynamism of Makati.
